Common Problems of Tankless Water Heaters and How to Troubleshoot Them

November 7, 2019

Tankless Water Heaters are gaining popularity recently due to its efficiency and cost saving potential. It is efficient because of its secured configurations that do not allow a catastrophic leak. Similarly, it saves 27 to 50 percent of fuel costs as compared to its gas-fired tank counterpart. It is cost-effective because it only heats water […]

Potentials and Challenges of Solar-assisted Heat Pumps

October 7, 2019

Solar-assisted heat pumps are being introduced as hybrid climate control systems. Simply put, the technology couples two energy-efficient heating technologies together to create a single, blended climate controlling system. Without the solar panels, the refrigerant-powered equipment does its best to absorb heat out of the outside air. Paired now with a solar collector unit, the […]

How to Determine the Ideal Temperature Setting for a Hot Water Tank Thermostat?

September 25, 2019

Why are hot water tank thermostats set at higher temperatures? For once, here’s a simple question to answer. It’s because of system contaminants. No, not the hard water minerals that leave scaly rings around everything. It’s the bacteria that would otherwise thrive in warm water. Hotter than 60°C, harmful microbes can’t survive in steamy hot […]

The Differences between Active and Passive Solar Water Heaters

September 2, 2019

Free hot water, freshly warmed by the sun, that’s what solar technology has provided to homeowners. The energy-efficient panels grab the heat right out of the sky. However, from here, things flow in two possible directions. That’s because there are two separate solar water heating architectures. In one system, warm water is convection circulated. In […]
